MLR's Bogan cruise ship

AIM MXS dash?

Also can do logging 

My curiosity to coin ratio only extends so far

$1500 to see my trans temp and AIT, yeah nah

Plus that AIM dash would look so out of place in the old bogan cruise ship

I have a head unit and can thus run any ODB2 app I want. I have the entire torque pro app running in the double din with all the gauges I need.

Note: Don't need any, as I have enough mechanical gauges. But I can put extra stuff there!! And stupid shit like 0-100 runs, or my track day telemetry.

Also Trackaddict is great. And allows overlay for all the circuit things, and does not interfere with god knows what. Go one step further and just tune your f**kin car and buy a MPVI2 lol.

The tech has progressed past whatever that thing is now, and if you want to say have gauges for everything, that is what ODB2 and some kind of display/screen is FOR.

😭 I just want to know my trans temp and IAT 😭

As for tuning, I can barely log on to the interwebs, let alone play with that black magic tuning thing

I can see it now.

Why do you need to know these things if you're never going to do a burnout video?

Trans temp and cooler are actually pretty important. I remember my hi-stall adventures, its well worth knowing so you can freak out as it climbs in traffic like I did before I installed a fan for it!

Gona just start drilling out holes all over the car for weight reduction??

Yeap, what could go wrong

Bugger

The trans doesn't in fact have a trans temp sensor, no trans temp for me thru the OBD2....spoke to Craigs about this and they believe my temps would be fine anyway as the trans has a big pan and a big air to oil cooler, I asked about if cold fluid temps would cause an issue and they said as long as the engine is at temp the trans will be fine.

Meh, the scanner showed no codes though, which was nice

I'm still happy with what it actually can do

Currently it got volts, coolant temp, IAT and boost

I wish I had this when 1. My alternator died, or 2. When my battery died 6 months later..

IAT goes from about 50°c cruising to 80°c during a long hard pull down the local strip at work, hot yes, but hot IAT is a thing with a PD supercharger, you cannot really tell the difference in performance and the ECU black magic deals with it anyway, #notaracecar, soooooo, if my IAT vary from this I may have a coolant flow issue to the W2A intercooler

This tells me that a PD supercharger is great for the street and strip, where a 5 to 10 second hit is all that is needed, but it would be rubbish for the track where you are constantly on the loud pedal, I would assume heat soak would be rampant after 1/2 lap at your local motorsport park, and possibly the ssme for towing...maybe.....

Coolant temps are a fairly fixed 93° c once up to temp

And boost is boost, unlike a turbo which can overboost, the PD blower either blows, or it doesn't, and of it ain't blowing it's because it's dropped a belt

Put a real temp sensor in the line that runs from your trans cooler - That's what I did.

80C while your foot is down? That is ridiculous and has obliterated any desire to ever get on boost.
50C is already massively heat soaked. 80C after a few seconds makes me wonder if your intercooler even exists.

Dang.

But strangely those temps seem to be a thing when it comes to PD blowers, I initially freaked out but the tuner said it is typical, then rang Harrop who said it's typical, then Googled it....google said it's typical and/or that the sensor might heat soak because of it's location, meh, the car is perfect for what I want so

And I knew going in that a PD isn't as efficient as turbos IRT IAT, but I'm happy to compromise a bit, the car goes like a cut snake from idle

Craigs suggested if I really want trans temp to get a bung tapped into the pan for the most accurate temp, I might get this done next trans service

I will chase up some logs from a mates car for reference, it is very similar. I recall it will heat soak high but then giving a squirt will go lower due to airflow .

 

Lsa engines go up like crazy when giving it a blast. Easily add at least 20 degrees over a quarter mile pass. Those intercollegiate in the blower are laughably small.

 

Don't look at interchillers. Don't think  about having a system that gives you air inlet temps below zero.

What's wrong with interchillers?

Nothing. It's just something else you will look at and buy but don't really need!

Nothing to see here........

Quietly googles interchillers........again...........yeah, nah, the car is boss for what I use it for and it seriously doesn't need any more power

For the occasional street pull I cannot see there being any real reason

As for unnecessary modifications, well, there is always an electric power steering pump from an Astra, and/or electric water pump, both are not necessary, but for some strange reason I keep googling them........

It's like/is a disease......LOL

As I was bored at work, and possibly somewhere on the spectrum 

20210709_134913.thumb.jpg.0090b4f2fbc2a03448c77aa23363e346.jpg

I had some of the stuff I used to cover the headers left over.

It's pretty toasty inside the engine bay, hopefully this "may" help with the radiant heat on the cooland lines and reservoir 

And running my WTA lines inline with my 90° coolant lines wouldn't have been helping either

Will it be noticable? I'll see gow it goes next outing. Either way it got me away from actually doing real work
